Royal wedding dresses have long inspired bridal trends, but arguably few more so than the bespoke gowns worn by the Duchess of Sussex on her wedding day. In contrast to the stunning embellished vintage gown worn by the most recent royal bride, Princess Beatrice, Meghan championed a modern bridal style with her two minimalistic wedding dresses designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy and Stella McCartney in 2018.
